Zodiac Signs Personality 

The study of astrology and astronomy has gone through a transition over the years. People have been interested in the planets’ positions and their influence on human drives and impulses. It is believed that the planets in the solar system have a major influence on one’s personality. Certain zodiac signs have come to be associated with different planets along with having their own myth, color, animal, and characteristics. We can say that each zodiac sign has a different approach to life and individual strengths and weaknesses.

A zodiac sign of a person is determined by their date of birth and represents their self, preferences, and how they move through the world. It also sheds light on their flaws, fears, wishes as well as their gifts. There are four main categories symbolic of elements. These include fire, earth, air, and water. 

The element of fire is associated with three zodiac signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. These signs are passionate, enthusiastic, and full of excitement. The element of earth is associated with zodiac signs of Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo. These signs are grounded and practical in nature. The element of air is associated with signs like Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius. These zodiac signs are inquisitive, curious, and intellectual in nature.
